BearFest is a hands-on touchable art event, proving that art doesn’t have to be “serious” to be great. Local artists decorated, embellished, bejeweled and painted larger than life size bears. Evergreen Federal Bank puts on this event and proceeds from the auction of these loveable bears directly benefits various local non-profit organizations. Some of the bears from previous years are now on permanent display at the Bear Hotel.
Evergreen is pleased to display 60 BearFest Bears on the streets of downtown Grants Pass for our community to enjoy from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
